Plugin Directory

EWWW Image Optimizer Cloud

Reduce file sizes for images within WordPress including NextGEN, GRAND FlAGallery and more via paid cloud service.

Does the plugin replace existing images?

Yes, but only if the optimized version is smaller. The plugin should NEVER create a larger image.

Can I resize my images with this plugin?

No, that would be a lossy operation, and we try to avoid that. Use Imsanity.

Can I lower the compression setting for JPGs to save more space?

Again, that would be a lossy operation, and we try to avoid that. Use Imsanity.

The bulk optimizer doesn't seem to be working, what can I do?

Each image is given 50 seconds to complete (which actually doesn't include time used by the optimization utilities). If that doesn't seem to do the trick, you can also increase the setting max_execution_time in your php.ini file. That said, there are other timeouts with Apache, and possibly other limitations of your webhost. If you've tried everything else, the last thing to look for is large PNG files. In my tests on a shared hosting setup, "large" is anything over 300 KB. You may need to convert problematic PNGs to the JPG format. Screenshots are often done as PNG files, but that is a poor choice for anything with photographic elements.

I want to know more about image optimization, and why you chose these options/tools.

That's not a question, but since I made it up, I'll answer it. See the Image Optimization sections for Yslow - Yahoo and Google PageSpeed. Pngout was suggested by a user and in tests optimizes better than Optipng, and best (usually) when they are used together.
